Cannot set height of table in IE 8
I'm trying to set the height of a table so that I can get it to scroll. No
matter what I do, I cannot get IE 8 to set the height of the table properly.
I have a table defined this way:

<table>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
<tr><td>cell 1</td><td>cell2</td><td>cell3</td></tr>
</table>

Then, in my CSS I have:

table { display: block; height: 200px; overflow: scroll; width: 400px; }

RE: Cannot set height of table in IE 8
Your table heigth will depend on the content or objects placed into the
individual cells table. Place data or graphics and IE-8 should respond to
your size issue.

What I want to do is use CSS to specify either a max-height or a height.
This works fine in every other browser (even IE6).

What I'm trying to accomplish is a scrolling table with a fixed header. I'd
like to be able to set the height/max-height on the table, then set overflow:
auto on the tbody element. The problem comes in because IE8 doesn't appear
to support setting the height of either the table or the tbody elements.
This works in Safari and Firefox. With an extra div and some tweaked
styling, this can work in IE 6 and IE 7. All of these browsers will size the
table accordingly.
